Patches was the first cat to be adopted by CalicoMom Toni in the Big Piney Woods and she takes her role as #1 cat seriously. She was a bit suspicious of Mittens when she first came, but got used to her quickly. It took Patches a bit longer to get used to Precious when she first came, probably because Precious was still mostly kitten and is still much more active than Patches was used to. Recently the house in the Big Piney Woods was visited by a pair of Meezer kittens. Patches greeted one of them at first, then decided she was better off upstairs with Mittens.

Patches is the Lady in Charge.
The others obey her, by and large.
If she wants to play,
Then it's OK.
Otherwise it's safer not to charge.

Our Mom is fond of Patches, as she reminds Mom of a baby kitty she had when she was little--her name was Patches, too!

Patches is such a great cat! Mommy has a huge soft spot for calicos ('specially since there are two of them that live here!)
